Pros: Great Benefits (insurance and time off), Set hours
Cons: Non-Competitive Pay, Insufficient staffing
Admissions office for out-patient dialysis clinics operated by company. Daily tasks are typically routine, but the ever-changing healthcare industry drives new procedures, policies, and programs. The changes in the industry and our operations cause stress and some drama with business partners.
It is a good opportunity to gain experience in the healthcare industry. I have gained experience with medical records, customer service, and data entry/processing.
Some co-workers are great and are friendly. However, there is often office drama that may be best to avoid.
The biggest challenges are handing the stress, the dynamics of the industry, and the office drama. Management, at times, can be too much of micromanagement. The best way to succeed is to handle stress well and stay focused on the tasks at hand.
The most enjoyable part of the job is the relationships built in the office and with our clinic staff across the country. There is also satisfaction in knowing that patients' lives can be improved by the service we provide.
